The Ramones Debuted 43 Years Ago Today

Happy 43rd birthday to the first Ramones album, an album many credit as the beginning of punk rock itself. The band’s self-titled debut The Ramones was released on April 23rd, 1976 and is considered to be the first true punk album.  Like any good punk album, it’s both fast – clocking in at 14 songs in just 29 minutes, and cheap – the band recorded it in one week for $6,400. The album opens with one of the band’s biggest hits, “Blitzkrieg Bop”, and is one of only two Ramones albums to be certified Gold.
